Papua precision


I read the piece on Robert Buckley's recent experience in Papua New Guinea (NCE 3 February).

Buckley was part of a team which works on water projects throughout PNG. He contributed to the Muschu Island scheme, but so did others.

I should also like to correct the quote: 'Despite the problems, six months later, the project was delivering water.' This is not the case, Buckley did not complete the project by the time he left.
